Easy Gems:

When ever you get into a duel this can be done. To aquire a random gem (diamond

ruby amethyst etc.) you must get an “Excellent” rating in the duel. To do this

you must get all the moves into the brighter portion of the duel box. These

gems are VERY good. And can be aquired quite easily. They sell for about 600

gold each.

Easy Way to Raise Strengnth for Xiao’s Weapon:

Go in the first levels of the first dungeon with Toan, use a strong weapon that

you don’t plan on using. Up that weapon to level 5 then status break it and

put it on Xiao’s weapon. Xiaos sling shot should be quite a bit stronger.

The 7th Heaven:

Get the Serpent Sword and build it up into the Evilcise, then build to the Drain

Seeker, next to the Dark Cloud and then finally to the 7th Heaven.

Never Fear:

If anyone’s missed getting a 7th Heaven sword for some reason don’t throw away

any Bone Rapiers if you find one, because if you build up the Bone Rapier into

an Evilsice you’ll be able to build it up into a Dark Cloud and then a 7th Heaven.

Easy Backroom Access:

For easy backroom access go to Queens and their you can buy flopping fish at

Ruty’s Shop, which you can use to get into all the backrooms on the Shipwreck.

Relatively Free Up Grades:

After you get the serpent sword, take the sword and go into the divine beast

cavern with lots of health, lots of water, and one tram oil. Level 9 is good.

Go there and oil the tram and go into the backplane, there reap all the treasures.

Every time you kill an enemy with the serpent sword, before he hits the ground,

change weapons and select the one you want to beef up. It’ll get the ABS and

take no dammage!! You can then take the tram back and forth to repeat (without

leaving the dungeon).


After building the shop in Matataki the owl will offer you the Wise Owl Sword

for 2500 gilda, buy it. It changes to Toans ultimite weapon, the Chronicle,

faster than any other weapon the Chronicles Max stats are At:260 Mg:150.

Money for Kills:

Go buy a bunch of bombs at any store where they are available, and kill as many

enemies with them as you can. Almost every enemy you kill will drop an attachment.

Since bombs cost 80$ and you can sell an attachment for 150$, you make 70$ for

every kill you get!

Demon Shaft:

After beating the final boss and watching the credits the game will say a new

land has opened. Save your game and when you restart it the Demon Shaft will

have opened up. The Demon Shaft is a 100 level dungeon with extermely powerful

monsters it takes 3-4 hits with a maxed out chronicle to kill them but if you

endure the Demon Shaft and beat its boss you will be rewarded with the chronicle

II the most powerful sword in the game with an attack of 350.

Buying Stamina Potions:

After you put Suzy’s store in queens back together she will want a name for

it. Name it Fighting Watery and she will sell stamina potions.

Defeat Dran:

This is a way to beat Dran in the dungeon. Shot Xiao sling shot and when dran

is down on the ground run up there with Toan and hit him. This may take a while

depending on how strong your weapon is but it’s the most effective.

Demon Shaft Dungeon:

After beating the game, you will be asked to save. After saving, reload your

game, and a new location will be available on the world map. It is the Demon

Shaft, an extremely hard dungeon, with 100 floors.

Defeating Black Pendragon:

When fighting the Black Pendragon at the end of the Demon Shaft, only attack

with one hit then retreat. If you attempt a combo he will counter and cause

your sword, no matter how powerful, to instantly break. Save immediately before

you attempt to fight him, to avoid losing any precious weapons such as a Chronicle


Defeating Dark Genie:

Note: It is recommended that you max out your Ultimate Weapons’ stats before

confronting this Boss. The Dark Genie’s first form has a variety of attacks.

One of them is an energy beam that can instantly kill a character. To dodge

this attack, you need to constantly be on the move. Its other attacks are fairly

easy to dodge. Start out with Toan and try to dodge the hand. Look and see what

color of the eye on the hand is. For example, if the color is yellow, you would

use Thunder as the element for your weapon. Go to your weapons menu and make

the needed adjustments. You will need to do so several times. After enough damage

has been done, the Dark Genie will change its attack pattern. It will no longer

use the hand attack. Instead, it will stand up and blast energy beams. Switch

to Xiao and use her sling shot. Lock on to Genie’s head and fire. Be sure to

keep on moving around the platform to dodge its attack. The Dark Genie’s second

form is much bigger but its attacks are almost the same. The target now is the

bright orb that sticks of his mouth. Use Toan and apporach it and attack. Back

away as he attacks, then repeat. Watch out for the two monsters that Genie calls

out, however it is not required to kill them.

Defeating Ice Queen Saia:

Buy about fifteen Fire Gems from Joker’s Store in Queens. If you need money,

sell fishing bait. When the battle starts, use a Drans Feather to get very close

to her while trying to avoid her shots. When you are close enough to her, get

a lock and just keep tossing the gems at her. It is best if you can keep her

trapped in a corner.

Defeating Masterutan:

Use Goro for the entire time. Select Goro’s Battle Ax, keep attacking the big

ape, and trap him against the edge of the battlefield. He will eventually die.

Defeating Minotaur:

Use either Toan or Osmond. As the Minotaur runs around the arena, barrels will

start to fall. The Minotaur will pick up a barrel and start drinking. Run towards

him and attack, then retreat. Repeat this process and avoid his charge attacks

for an easy victory. Note: The barrels count as Stamina Drinks to the Minotaur,

so do not let him finish drinking, or one attack will probably kill you.

Defeating the Sun Moon Temple Boss:

First, use Ungaga to clear the dark wind around him, then switch to Toan and

hit with a charge attack. Repeat for about fifteen to twenty times. This Boss

is extremely easy.

Quick Money and Attachments :

After completing the Sunken Ship and getting all City Pieces, go to the Fish

Shop. Buy the Flapping Fish and an Ice Cube. Use the map and go to Sunken Ship

level 1. Run around until you find the entrance to the back floors. Use the

Flapping Fish when you find the entrance. A big fish will appear. Get in the

fish — press X when next to him, and choose the option to get in. Once you

get to the back floors, all or almost all treasures will be gems. You can either

use them for attachments or sell them. This can repeated as many times as needed.

Easy Experience:

Once you get to or past the Sunken Ship, go to the Fish Shop. buy the Flapping

Fish and an Ice Cube. Go to the Sunken Ship level 14 find the “?” mark on the

map. Use the Flapping Fish to get to the back area of level 14. There are 8

monsters each that give 24 EXP — A total of 192 EXP each time you enter the

level. You do not have to leave the dungeon once you have defeated all the monsters.

Just go back to level 14 and return to the level 14 back area and they will

appear again. If you have a new weapon that you want to build up, switch to

another character that is more powerful. Get the monster’s HP low, then switch

to that new weapon and kill with one hit. Your new weapon will get the EXP.

Free Items:

If you do not build Old Gaffer’s Buggy, you may still get free items from the

mayor and build your weapons up very high to get ready for the second village,

Matataki Village. Note: This will take some time, but is worth the effort.

Steve The Slingshot:

Steve the Talking Slingshot, can usually be found in about any dungeon, at any

level. However, he can be found most often in Wise Owl Forest, in the earlier

territories. Try running through all of Wise Owl Forest repeatedly, opening

every weapons (large) chest found. This may take a while, but it is worth it.

Steve talks whenever you are locked on to an enemy, and may tell you its weaknesses,

how cool he is, or just make funny comments about the enemy. This also works

with Bosses.

More Items at Odd Gaffer:

In Norune (the first town) the Merchants name is Odd Gaffer. Now to have him

sell more items than he usally does you MUST FIRST aquire Paige and Paiges House.

Then complete Odd Gaffers Shop. He will now sell a lot more items then usual.

If you don’t however he will fall and hurt his back while putting up his sign

for his shop thus not allowing you to buy many items. Do this! TRUST ME its

worth it! He sells items good even at the end of the game! I missed out on this

and believe me! Im MAD.

Get the Serpent Sword in Matakitaki Village:

First make sure you at least have 20 rivers. If you scan the area youll see

2 rivers on opposite sides one which is near treant. Take the first river and

connect it to the blocked off pond. Connect the rivers acroos town and connect

the last river to the entrance to treant. Next there will be a short movie of

2 forest fairies unblocking the river and allowing the river flow to treant.

When the movie is over walk to treant with the hunter earring and talk to treant

. He will award you with the serpent sword.

Thankful Jack:

If you finish King’s hideout before Jack’s store, Jack will give you a Big bucks

hammer and platinum ring for free.

Free Big Bucks Hammer & Platinum Ring:

These two items cost a total of 6,600 gilda, but you can get them for free!

When building QUEENS all you have to do is finish the King’s house and get “Ruby”

the genie BEFORE you finish JACK’S STORE. Then when you finish Jack’s Store

Ruby appears and Jack is afraid of her. She tells him he has no manners and

to show her some respect because she’s married to the king. He gets all shook

up and he comes out with the “big bucks hammer” and the “platinum ring” and

gives them to Ruby! All this while Toan watches in amazement.

When in Doubt, STEAL:

Concentrate on locating weapons that allow you to pilfer from your enemies.

The items you take are worth more than you’ll find in most dropped gilda bags.

The witches that live in the Wise Owl Forest and the Moon Sea will give up Poisonous

Apples — pound for pound the best fishbait in the game.

Fishing Fun:

Using the aforementioned apples, start fishing at the Oasis in Muska Lacka as

soon as you place it. You can catch Mardan Garayan at dusk MUCH easier than

you can at the falls in Matataki at night. Mardan’s average over 200 fish points

a piece — only the Baron Garayan is worth more and he’s ALOT harder to snag.

Why Mardan?:

Not only do you clean up on the fishpoints (which make weapon build up WAY easier

than waiting for a gem or two in some backroom after a dozen dungeon trips),

but as an added bonus Mardan will locate traps on all the Weapon (large) chests

in the dungeons. No more guessing wrong or waiting for that ever elusive Treasure

Key (which sell for 400 gilda each by the way).

Level Up Weak Sword:

Have you ever tried to level up a weak sword, and either end up breaking the

sword or not being able to defeat the enemy? If so, please try this, to save

you hours of work. First, have a GOOD sword (Sword of Zeus, Chronicles, etc.),

and defeat an enemy. Now, get a weaker sword (dagger, Maneater, etc.), and have

it ready. Equip the stronger sword, and go to an area where you can get a lot

of EXP, defeat an enemy with the strong sword, and right before the enemy disappears,

press the “Triangle” button, and equip the sword you want to level up. That

sword (instead of the stronger one) will gain the EXP. This is really good for

Status-Breaking your weak weapons, to make stronger ones even more powerful.

Easy Power Sword:

Try the cheat above, to level up the dagger, and status break it multiple times.

Now, equip the status-broken dagger onto another weapon, then level that weapon

up. Keep doing this to increase Attack power on the sword, without having to

buy or find a Topaz.

Mardan Garayan:

On the Muska Lucka level, you can catch a fish worth over 500 fish points! You

have to build the Oasis first, then buy Potato cakes, I find they work the best,

then fish, I don’t know exactly when you will catch it, but I cleard the Oasis

one time first, then I went back to fish again and that is when I cought it,

It is called Mardan Garayan, it is very colorful and is worth over 500 fish
